      During upgrade to DNN 09.13.1 for 2 of our sites, the upgrade process chrashes seemingly due to the upgrade process "automagically" downgrade the bindingRedirect  reference for the Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage

        First, have you tried reporting this in GitHub yet? I haven't done any digging yet, other than checking to see if anyone else has run into this yet, and it doesn't appear to be a reported issue by anyone else so far.  Maybe you could help document this so it can be resolved in a newer release.


        In the meantime, have you tried simply updating the bindingRedirect to match what you think it should be in your instance?  Does that resolve everything for now?

          Thank you Will for good comments.

          Trying to work along the lines and inspiration of your suggestion to see how to avoid the upgrade error I did the following:
          - restored DB and website backup for the site back to DNN 9.9.0 
          - manually copied the old Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage version from the DNN 09.13.1 upgrade pack to the bin folder
          - manually updating the binding redirect for Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage to be version in web config 
          Then run a regular DNN upgrade to DNN 09.13.1
          Now the upgrade worked fine

            The Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage.dll version 9.3.2 is however newer, and is also the tested version for several of our custom modules, so it is the better choice for us to restore back to Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage.dll version 9.3.2 after DNN upgrade

            ps. in the DNN-sites the Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage.dll is saved in 2 locations, in both folders:

            When updating the binding redirect in the web config to version 9.3.2 we also update Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage.dll version to 9.3.2 in /bin folder, should we then also update the Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage.dll to version 9.3.2 also in the \bin\Providers folder ?
